This morning I have a card that finally got itself made yesterday evening. It is based on the sketch at Rogue Redhead Designs. Just been to get the site address for the link and looked for the first time at the entries, honestly this was the first time i've looked. It would seem that the Milliner girls are very popular & why not.
Something else unusual for me is the use of DP's but at Doncaster recently a set called 'Time Flies' Craftwork Cards just drew me in. The colour pallet is dusty purples/lilacs with touches of Teal and dusky pink. After faffing to cut this directly to fit I remembered by DP's are not something to reach for very often.
The main image and it's frame were die cut into smooth card. After using the die to emboss the card and before removing the frame die the embossed slots were coloured with DI and my ink dusters. The same DI has also been dusted over the mat. The girls were stamped in grey and coloured with ProMarkers. Finally the butterfly has been cut from the DP and shaped before being added to the frame.
Last time the Rogue Redhead design challenge was to make Scrapings & I was thrilled to find out that my entry had been selected as a top 3. Thank you Shar.
Other awards I've recently been honoured by are:
Thank you to both challenges it is always a thrill to be recognised in this way. Your awards will go onto my sidebar, it's just that I've been a little busy with a new Mac and Challenges for Days recently & thanks to that have found somewhere else that might like my card:
